These Are the 15 Home Decor Trends Taking Instagram by Storm

Whether you're completely redecorating or just feeling inspired by the changing seasons to add a few new pieces to your abode, Instagram serves as endless inspiration for home decor and furniture. It's the easiest way to discover DIY projects, trendy decor, and what your favorite designers and influencers are working on in real-time (yep, check their IG stories!).

But it also takes a lot of combing through to figure out what items and trends are versatile enough to incorporate into your space, no matter your aesthetic. That's why we did the homework for you. Scroll down for the 15 most popular interior design trends, according to Instagram.

1. Woven Pendants

Rattan, sisal, seagrass, and other woven pendant shades have become the focal point of any room from the bedroom to the dining room. Apparent on Instagram, many homeowners have gravitated to this affordable style from IKEA, in particular.

2. U-Shaped Art

Introducing geometric shapes, like U-shaped art, is way to add a whimsical touch to an entryway or a playroom, while still maintaining a modern, minimalist feel. Shop a similar U-shaped print here.

3. Leather Couches

Leather couches have been cropping up literally everywhere, which makes sense as they provide a neutral anchor for any throw pillow combination. These two from Article and Joybird are popular choices.

4. SMEG Appliances

The one thing your kitchen is most likely missing is a SMEG refrigerator. While they are certainly on the slimmer side, decorators and influencers love these vintage-inspired appliances for more compact spaces.

5. Kitchen Runners

Runner rugs (as seen here, here, and here) not only provide a pop of color to any kitchen, but they also offer a little extra cushioning for feet if you're spending the afternoon cooking or baking. The gold hues in this runner will warm any kitchen.

6. Tasseled Chandeliers

Is it just us or does everyone have the Justina Blakeney Fela Tasseled Chandelier? Perfect for bohemian, Scandinavian, and farmhouse-chic spaces, this cute pendant looks just as great in a bedroom as it does in your living room.

7. Circular Mirrors

If you're looking to decorate your bathroom, vanity, or entryway, Instagram has made a case for circular, gold mirrors. The metallic finish and slender frame add just the right amount of glam to your wall. Shop this affordable find for less than $60.

8. Wishbone Chairs

No dining table is complete without a wishbone chair, says Instagram. Splurge on the original Y Chair model by Hans Wegner or select an impressive knock-off from Amazon — and just add a plush pillow to make the curved back even more cozy and comfortable.

9. Sheepskin Throws

Sheepskin throws aren't going away any time soon — and we won't argue, because they are so incredibly soft. Style one in a chair in a reading nook or drape one over the end of your bed for added warmth and texture. We love this ethically sourced, lush pick from The Citizenry.

10. Velvet Pillows

Whether you're in the market for a throw pillow to spruce up your all-white bed or want one that will complement the colors in your favorite comforter or quilt, velvet pintucked pillows are the versatile decor item you didn't know you needed. Shop 10 different shades here.

11. Leather Bar Stools

A far cry from your dad's man-cave, sleek leather stools are in and bring elegance to any kitchen, bar area, or high-top table. Instagram's pick: these exact Sigfred Barstools from Inmod that are under $100.

12. Rattan Beds

Giving us major California vibes, rattan bed frames and headboards have been popping up everywhere. Not only do they make a space feel light and airy (thanks to their open-weave texture), but they're also an easy way to incorporate bohemian decor into your bedroom. Shop one of our favorites here.

13. Basket Planters

Baskets have so many uses, from storing extra blankets to concealing clutter (toys, for example). But Instagram is using seagrass baskets as chic vessels for plants, and we couldn't be more on board. Pick from one of these adorable two-toned baskets for a leafy plant or tree.

14. White Poufs

We'd say that poufs are back, but we're now actually wondering if they ever went out of style? Perfect as additional seating or as a footstool, home decor influencers are going ga-ga over clean, simple white poufs that truly stand out in a space. Find yours here.

15. Cane Chairs

You might recognize these cane chairs as the ones your grandmother had at her house, but they are seriously trending on the 'gram. We especially love this version with the natural back and olive green seat cushion.
